RE: Using Winegard Satelite Dish Far From Home???

Don't confuse the Sat set up in the receiver with the normal boot-up sequence. Chuck

RE: Really scary incident tonight - almost lost my tow!

Thanks for all the replies - appreciate the concern. I've been towing - pop-up and now my car - for years, first time anything like this has happened. A little unnerving! I'm also trying to figure out why the NSA (NOT Blue Ox as stated above) safety cable broke - my car is about 3300lbs and the cables are each rated for 4000lbs, I think... NSA safety cables I will definitely make a hitch pin change and will find a way to lock it up. This one was purchased at either Home Depot or WalMart - don't remember the specific brand. Appreciate the suggestions! While your car may weigh 3300 lbs, the stress on those cables will exceed that easily under the right circumstances. Chuck

RE: Dish Channels

These are also market specific. While your channels might be missing, mine are still working. Chuck

RE: Is 70 the age to stop towing

I suppose that when my motorhome is 70 years old I will stop towing with it. Chuck

RE: Locast adds Atlanta and Phoenix

"15" markets in a country as large as the U.S. is pretty puny. This service would really have to expand in a big way to make it very beneficial. It's called marketing speak. Chuck

RE: Keep using Eternabond until entire roof is covered?

Will that Hengs adhere to Eternabond ? If you buy the correct one. Chuck

RE: Keep using Eternabond until entire roof is covered?

We recoated ours 4 years ago and it is just fine. I agree with others that this is your best and easiest option. Probably the least expensive also. Chuck

RE: run problem with Onan Marquis 5000 BGM

I had the exact same problem and fixed it with a new carburetor. But with the Onan, it can be a number of things. They are famous for the oil and overheat sensors going bad. The thunk sound when trying to start might be a low battery. Chuck

RE: Travel to Guadalajara

We traveled throughout the Atlantic Coast area from the US to Belize and never had any issues and never felt unsafe. We did avoid major cities. But we avoid major cities in the US. Chuck

RE: Travel to Guadalajara

Is it actually 'safe' to travel in Mexico with all the cartels in control and the corruption of government officials? Seems to me from what I have heard, traveling in Mexico is like playing Russian roulette. You may be fine for a while then life as you know it could drastically change. We were thinking about going there, but decided not to go after some research. Lakeside Your biggest safety concerns will come from those that have never been there and spend too much time reading the news. Chuck

RE: Must cross Yosemite NP to Convict Lake?

We did not have to pay a fee to transit Yellowstone. Can't say about Yosemite. I would call directly and ask. Chuck

RE: Sanitizing fresh water tank

Can anyone provide any verifiable sources for anyone that has gotten seriously ill that is definitely contributed to the water system in their RV? Chuck Reading a study that a substantial number of RV water systems are contaminated with Legionella does not appear to be enough of a warning for you. Do you have an opening where you can feel the sides of your water tank? I can almost guarantee it will feel slimy if you have not sanitized the tank within a few months. You might even be able to see some pink or other discoloration due to bacteria. You can also have the water cultured. I dealt with ultrapure lab water and it was still hard to keep the water from becoming contaminated at each spigot. I don't know how much warning you need. I am not about to do a literature search to satisfy your skepticism. Instead I will just keep treating my system before each season and if the water is stagnant or unchlorinated. You say you're reading a study. Share it with us. What's the harm? My experience is real world and not something I have read. Chuck

RE: Restrictions on older RVs.

We did an 18,000 mile trip around the U.S. and stayed at every type of RV park. We never found any that questioned the age of our RV. It's a 1999. Chuck

RE: Dish from DirecTV Conversion Coax Question

Sorry, I guess I am installing the Dish Pro Plus since that is what Winegard sent me and I have an older dish. Chuck

RE: Dish from DirecTV Conversion Coax Question

TechWriter, Still not showing me the coax I ask about. They are coax FROM the LNB and not the coax into the RV. Chuck

RE: Dish from DirecTV Conversion Coax Question

Bill, There are 3 coax from the LNB. As I said they are color coded black, green, and red. The ports are A, B, and C. My question again is what color needs to go to A? What color needs to go to B? What color needs to go to C? Richard, that post and diagrams do not answer my question. I really need some feedback from anyone that has done this as to how you made the connections. The connections from the base to the DPH42 switch is not an issue. I have that covered. Chuck

RE: Dish from DirecTV Conversion Coax Question

There is no owners manual and the installation instruction for the "conversion" do not really cover my question. I would appreciate a response from anyone that has done the DirecTV to Dish conversion on the Winegard Travlr. Chuck

Dish from DirecTV Conversion Coax Question

In the process of converting the Travlr, I see the LNB has 3 cables instead of one like the DirecTV. They are green, red and black. They connect to A,B, and C in the bottom of the turret. I thought I read somewhere that they need to be connected correctly to make everything work right. Can someone help with the connection sequence? Thanks. Chuck
